Stranded is the third studio album by the English rock band Roxy Music, originally released in November 1973 via Island Records.

Roxy Music were formed in 1971 by lead singer Bryan Ferry and bassist Graham Simpson, and saxophonist Andy Mackay after Ferry advertised for a keyboard player to work with the pair, following his sacking from ceramics teaching after holding impromptu record listening sessions. Brian Eno (a university friend of Mackay) joined soon after as a technical advisor, followed by Paul Thompson on drums, and when guitarist David O'List quit the band after an altercation with Thompson, roadie Phil Manzanera was invited to replace him.

Roxy Music attained popular and critical success in Europe and Australia during the 1970s and early 1980s, with three UK No. 1 albums (StrandedFlesh and Blood, and Avalon), six UK gold albums, and their best-selling album Avalon, which earned Platinum certification in the US and the UK. The band was highly influential as pioneers of the more experimental, musically sophisticated, elements of glam rock, and significantly influenced early English punk music, providing a model for new wave and the experimental electronic groups of the early 1980s. Rolling Stone magazine ranked Roxy Music No. 98 on its "The Immortals – 100 The Greatest Artists of All Time" list.

 

Recorded at Sir George Martin's AIR Studios in London, Stranded was produced by Chris Thomas (The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Elton John, INXS). This was the first Roxy Music album on which Bryan Ferry was not the sole songwriter, with Andy Mackay and Phil Manzanera also contributing to the album. Although it was also the first without Brian Eno, who had left the group after For Your Pleasure, he later rated Stranded as Roxy Music's finest record. 

Stranded also earned praise from critics and was considered an artistic breakthrough for the band. In a 1974 Rolling Stone review, Paul Gambaccini wrote: "Roxy Music can no longer be ignored by Americans. They may not achieve the commercial success they have in Britain, where Stranded reached Number One, but their artistic performance must be recognized. Stranded is an eloquent statement that there are still frontiers which American pop has not explored".

The album cover shows Bryan Ferry's then girlfriend and 1973 Playmate of the Year, Marilyn Cole.

Stranded was preceeded by the release of the single Street Life ( and a live version). Check out a couple of other tracks: Amazona, Serenade and A Song For Europe.

This LP Record is a Reissue "From The Capitol Vaults Series" on 180 Gram Audiophile Quality Vinyl housed in a Gatefold Sleeve with Giant Fold-Out Poster, pressed in the US via Virgin Records.
